Both Marshall and WVU have had a lot of change among their respective football coaching staffs this offseason.
Another occurred on Friday with an assistant leaving one of the state's Division I programs for the other.
JaJuan Seider, Marshall's running backs coach and recruiting coordinator, is heading back to WVU where he started his college football career. Seider will coach the Mountaineer ball carriers.
“It’s great to welcome JaJuan back to Mountaineer football,” WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen said in a release. “He is an energetic coach and recruiter, who knows our program and state very well. His coaching versatility and background will be an asset to our program, and I know he will bring a passion to succeed at his alma mater.”
Seider had been with Doc Holliday since the Hurricane native became Marshall's head coach in 2010.
While in Huntington, Seider was named Conference USA's top recruiter in 2012.
Among his prized recruits at Marshall were quarterback Rakeem Cato and running back Kevin Grooms. Cato was C-USA's Player of the Year in 2012.
While at WVU as a graduate assistant, Seider helped develop Mountaineer signal callers Pat White, Jarrett Brown and Geno Smith.
Seider was a standout quarterback at Florida A&M and earned the Doug Williams Award as the National Offensive Player of the Year and the Jake Gaither Award (considered the Heisman Trophy Award for black colleges).
